    It is an unexpected and unfortunate fact of life that accidents happen. In many accidents, the people involved in the accident suffer personal injuries – harm to the body, mind, and emotions.

    When these injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence, reckless or intentional misconduct, the victim may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim either in or out of court. The goal of a personal injury claim is to seek compensation for damages that the injured victim has suffered. This could include payments for medical expenses, lost wages due to time missed from work, and pain and suffering.

    When you have been injured by someone else, it is very important to have experienced, dedicated legal representation on your side. A skilled and seasoned personal injury lawyer can explain your legal rights and options and guide you through the process of seeking compensation.

    If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own in Baton Rouge or elsewhere in Louisiana, contact the personal injury lawyers at Tomeny | Best Injury Lawyers today by phone or reach out to us online to schedule a free consultation.

    How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

    After you’ve been injured in a traumatic accident, you may be unsure about how able to cover the expenses of medical treatment, or how to provide for yourself and your family if you are out of work for an extended period of time.

    The party or parties responsible for your injuries, or their insurers, may offer you a settlement soon after your accident, promising you quick cash to help cover your expenses. However, these settlement offers rarely represent the maximum amount of compensation that an at-fault party or insurance company is willing to offer. Nor will this lump sum provide the amount of compensation that you will need to fully cover your damages.

    Help from a Baton Rouge personal injury lawyer can be critical to secure the maximum financial recovery that you are legally entitled to. A personal injury lawyer can thoroughly and independently investigate the accident and secure the evidence necessary to prove how your accident and injuries occurred and who was really at fault.

    A personal injury lawyer is also equipped to identify the parties who may be legally responsible for compensating you for your injuries. This includes not only the people responsible for causing your injuries, but also their employer, other businesses, manufacturers, and property owners.

    A personal injury lawyer can also target potential sources of funds that can compensate you for your injuries and damages, particularly insurance coverage.

    The team at Tomeny | Best Injury Lawyers is well equipped to pursue personal injury compensation on your behalf. Our lawyers can negotiate a full and fair settlement by reviewing the offers made by the at-fault party’s insurer to ensure that you only accept one that provides you with fair and full compensation.

    If a fair settlement isn’t offered, your lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf to pursue the financial compensation and justice that you deserve. As a part of this process, an attorney timely and properly files all required court documents. If your case makes it to trial, a personal injury lawyer will vigorously argue your case to a judge and jury to seek a verdict and judgment in your favor.

    How Do I Choose the Right Personal Injury Lawyer for My Case?

    If you’ve been the victim of an accident, you may know the complications and stress that result from trying to navigate the legal process – especially on your own. To minimize the difficulty, it is best to work with a personal injury lawyer to effectively pursue a claim for compensation on your behalf.

    With so many personal injury law firms to choose from – consumers are bombarded with all forms of ads every day – it can be difficult to know which personal injury lawyer is right for you. Not all personal injury lawyers have the same degree of experience or skill. Choosing the right attorney may be the most critical decision you make.

    Process of Personal Injury Lawsuits

    If you have a claim for compensation after suffering a personal injury, it is important to understand the personal injury claim process. Many people may not realize that most personal injury claims never go to trial or even see the inside of a courtroom.

    Instead, the first step in the process of a personal injury lawsuit is to make a claim with the at-fault party or parties or their insurers to try and reach a settlement that pays you fair and full compensation.

    If the other party accepts fault for your injuries and your damages can be determined with certainty, it may be possible to reach a prompt settlement. However, if the at-fault party disputes liability or if there is some dispute over your damages, such as ongoing medical treatment or long-term care requirements, it may take longer to reach a settlement.

    When it is not possible to reach an acceptable settlement, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit in court. This process officially begins when the injured party (the plaintiff), through their lawyer, files a complaint. The complaint and a summons must be served on the party (or parties) responsible for your injuries (the defendant), as well as submitted to the court.

    The defendant or defendants then have an opportunity to respond to your complaint, either by seeking to dismiss the case on technical grounds or by filing an answer disputing the substance of your claims. If the defendant doesn’t respond to your complaint by the deadline, you may be able to obtain a default judgment.

    Once your complaint and the defendant’s answer have been filed in the courthouse, the attorneys engage in a process known as discovery. During discovery, the parties exchange information and documents and takes deposition testimony from relevant witnesses. This gives all parties a fuller picture of the evidence that is likely to be presented at trial. During or after discovery, either side may petition the court for a judgment on the premise the evidence is so one-sided that the case can be resolved without continuing the process any further.

    If the case is not resolved by a motion for judgment or by a settlement between the parties, the case will move to trial. After each side has the opportunity to present evidence and engage in cross-examination, the judge or jury or judge renders a judgment or verdict. If it goes in your favor, you will be able to legally enforce that judgment against the defendant should they, for some reason, fail to pay what the court orders.
